The Bible: Culture, Community, Society: Angus Paddison: T&T ClarkOral tradition , or oral lore , is a form of human communication wherein knowledge, art, ideas and cultural material is received, preserved and transmitted orally from one generation to another. In this way, it is possible for a society to transmit oral history , oral literature , oral law and other knowledge across generations without a writing system , or in parallel to a writing system. Religions such as Buddhism , Hinduism and Jainism , for example, have used an oral tradition, in parallel to a writing system, to transmit their canonical scriptures, secular knowledge such as Sushruta Samhita , hymns and mythologies from one generation to the next. Oral tradition is information, memories and knowledge held in common by a group of people, over many generations, and it is not the same as testimony or oral history. The study of oral tradition is distinct from the academic discipline of oral history ,  which is the recording of personal memories and histories of those who experienced historical eras or events.

See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD, And all the families of the nations will worship before You.
